Celebrate summer with this easy white wine sangria recipe in red, white, and blue! A two-ingredient cocktail and fruit combine for a quick summer cocktail.
Sangria is a wine-based drink mixed with other alcohols and fruit. It is traditionally made with red wine and the entire mix is left for hours so the flavors can meld like my Easy Sangria Recipe. When made properly, Sangria tastes like an adult Kool-Aid. It is a sweet drink so if you like fruity, you will love this one. It’s delicious and refreshing and the perfect summer cocktail recipe.
I discovered sangria a decade ago in a Spanish restaurant in Athens, Greece. I was in Athens studying law and one of my fellow students had found this restaurant by chance. It was one of the most memorable meals of my life and began a love of sangria.
If you want an easy sangria recipe festive for the summer holidays like Memorial Day and the 4th of Jul this easy red, white and blue-white wine sangria recipe is just the ticket.
Easy White Wine Sangria
You only need two ingredients to make the sangria – a white Moscato wine and Triple Sec liqueur – to make this quick and easy. Both of these are extremely sweet so you won’t need to add any extra sweetener like simple syrup or soda pop. You could also use a less sweet wine if you prefer. But generally, sangria is very sweet so the Moscato works well.
Making the sangria is super easy. Pour the entire bottle of Moscato into a large pitcher. You could also use a punch bowl. Add half a cup of triple sec to the Moscato and stir.
Slice up a few strawberries and add them to the sangria. Use whole berries to garnish cups, if desired. Add a handful or two of blueberries. Mix it up by using blackberries for the blue.
Let the sangria sit for as long as needed but you will want to serve it chilled. Serve in wine glasses or plastic cups. It’s great either way!
Make the sangria in a pitcher up to a day ahead of time, or just before your guests arrive. This recipe is more for fun and doesn’t really need to meld much.
Strawberries and blueberries are used to make the sangria red, white and blue, but you could also use apples, cherries or blackberries to keep with the red, white, and blue theme.
